As one of the most fervently celebrated parts of our relationship with animals, humanity, and dogs often go hand-in-hand. We love our canines, and they often love us every bit as much back. However, part of the problem with showing our love of dogs is that we can often find it hard to properly express that love.
Well, with the help of the wonderful new Museum of the Dog by The American Kennel Club, that is about to change. This awesome new program will start up on the 8th February 2019 in midtown Manhattan, found down at the Kalikow Building on 101 Park Avenue.
This is going to be home to some of the most delightful and awesome canine-inspired art that you are ever likely to come across. The richness and eloquence of the museum are easy to love, as is the range of options put on display during this exhibit. This is the first time that the MotD is going to be coming back to New York for the best part of 32-years, also.
For some time, it spent most of its time coming out of places like Missouri and West St. Louis County. However, the return to the big city of New York is well and truly the right move: it’s the perfect exhibition point for such an amazing collection of items. Despite having over 100 different museums throughout the city, the American Kennel Club can be the proud owners of the first-ever museum to be aimed directly at dogs.
Visitors can expect to find work from the likes of Maud Earl and Arthur Wardle, so be sure to come on down if you are a fan of their work.
A Famous Exhibition
Speaking about the new opening was that of Alan Fausel, the Executive Director of AKC Museum of the Dog, who said: “This museum is a beautiful ode to man’s best friend and we are thrilled to bring these pieces and exhibitions to new audiences,”
With several hundred special paintings and prints all waiting for you amid a sea of sculptures, figurines, decorative goods and so much more, you’ll find plenty of excitement waiting for you on every single wall.
With famous work from big names like those mentioned already, you will soon be able to find a lot of dog-related artwork you can fall in love with. The first exhibition that is going to be held here is going to be known as “For the Love of All Things Dog” – and this is the perfect summary of what makes the AKC Museum of the Dog such a special place to visit.
With two floors of awesome detail about to put out, you will find everything from rare porcelain pieces to unique reading collections which would allow you to learn all about your most delightful canine breeds.
So, if you are someone with an affection for our beloved furry friends, you would do well to come on down here and see what this most famous exhibition has in store for you!
